Left-handed pitcher Ty Blach has a better chance to make the Colorado Rockies
Overall, the Colorado Rockies and the other MLB teams are going to have 28-man rosters because they don’t want to push pitchers too hard and too fast. This is also why there is no limit on the number of pitchers on the roster.
Denver native Ty Blach will have a better chance to make the team with the expanded rosters and he would be a long reliever.
As of this publication, Blach is the only Rockies pitcher to make two starts so it’s obvious that they want to see more from him and to stretch him out some.
Blach has experience both as a starter and a reliever as he had 92 career appearances and 44 starts with the San Francisco Giants and Baltimore Orioles from 2016 through 2019. His best two seasons (2017-2018), he averaged 40 appearances and 18 starts per year with 141 innings so he could be that kind of swingman again for the Rockies.
Furthermore, in the current Colorado bullpen, the only lefty that is cemented in there right now is Lucas Gilbreath. Blach could provide them with a second (or third) left-handed reliever in the bullpen.
Rockies pitcher Ashton Goudeau could also benefit from the 28-man roster
Ashton Goudeau is another pitcher that could provide some length for the Colorado Rockies in the bullpen.
Goudeau, 29, pitched well in limited action with the Rockies in 2021 as a long reliever. With the Rockies in 2021, he appeared in 11 games and pitched in 25 1/3 innings with an ERA of 4.26, a 4.55 FIP, a 113 ERA+, and a 0.947 WHIP.
He isn’t going to blow anyone away with his stuff but if he pitches like that, he would be a good long relief option for the team.
